Book Description

This study offers a ckomprehensive new interpretation of one of Plato's dialogues, the Cratylus. Throughout, the book combines analysis of Plato's arguments with attentiveness to his philosophical method.



Rachel Barney is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Chicago.


"[Barney's] penetrating and sustained study of the Cratylus will be useful to any serious student of Plato or of ancient Greek language science. She concentrates on philosophical argument yet she does not overlook the literary aspects of Plato's dialogue." -- Malcolm D. Hyman, Harvard University
